Algae Dynamics Corp. (OTCQB: ADYNF), a company engaged in developing unique health products and pharmaceuticals that utilize hemp, cannabis and algae oils, is making international news through its current collaboration with the University of Western Ontario (now rebranded as Western University). A recent study conducted collaboratively between the two entities and globally reported (http://cnw.fm/9IE7f) has found that the negative effects of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)-rich marijuana on the adolescent brain can be reversed through the use of compounds that increase the amounts of GABA, which is a chemical and neurotransmitter in the brain. An article further discussing this reads: “THC exposure reduced the GABA in the brain, the study found. GABA regulates hyperactivity in the brain and has been associated with disorders such as schizophrenia. Negative effects developed later in adulthood from use of marijuana with THC include anxiety, depression and schizophrenia. Drugs that increase the amount of GABA could then reverse the impact of THC and eliminate the schizophrenia-linked symptoms, the research found. ‘We actually went in, and tried to restore the GABA system by activating GABA receptors directly in the prefrontal cortex,’ Western University Professor Steven Laviolette, who spearheaded the research study, said on the Andrew Lawton radio show in Canada (http://cnw.fm/PYP4d). ‘To our amazement, we found that this reversed those schizophrenia-like symptoms,’ he added in an interview with CBC London. He explained that the reversal process can still remain effective many years after the exposure.”
